So what? Was it illegal? Btw, I never saw any weapons at the 3 Bay Area events I was at, except for the police. Be very afraid when only the Government and criminal's can own weapons.

Grateful Dead played a thwarting and raw Dancing in The Streets opener for their classic anti-war protest benefit show at M.I.T. in 1970. Obviously, GD played that on purpose like that. They were taking an anti-war stance by playing their counter-culture music with, and for, "the people". Can't we make this connection? We suffer horribly from the dastardly deeds being committed by our mainstream US News Media......

New video uploads ("Moving Images") are placed into Community Video by default. That's the way it works right now, by design and administration. The Internet Archive's high-level administrators are the only ones who can move them.
"jihadist vids advocating violence and showing killing and maiming" are in no way "community" video. What's worse is that jihadist killers have free run in the press. Peace lovers like me are censored......

Yes - thanks to all our Veterans and their families. THANK YOU! When I was growing up, nearly all my friends' dads had served in WW 2. My dad flew missions over Europe in WW 2. He took pictures. In my late teens, I had some older friends who served in Korea. During the late 60s our veterans allowed us hippies to go bonkers objecting over the unjust war in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. The cruel nature of the Draft Board caused 1000s of our "poor" young men to be involuntarily sent to their deaths......
